Featuring new weapons, areas, and bosses that were not in the base title. Though the gas does harmful things to you, it does other dangerous things that affects enemies that inhabit the wastes of the planet.
Commander Lilith & The Fight for Sanctuary unlike previous DLC does offer a new tier of loot beyond Legendary which will add an even greater spin on better weapons than previous. As well as coinciding with the increased level cap that launched with the free story content too ( level 72 bumped up to level 80).
